Gulp. Gulp. Gulp. By the trillions we rushed from our hold below their world. A gate stood wide and a slide we would find. Another cavity to fill until it was time. Pump. Swirl. Pump. Swirl. Diameters fall and pressures rise, uncompressed I go. The pipe shrinks faster as a brilliant flash starts to build. A poppet to slow and explode in a spray. My world turns to flames. A loud screech escapes in the distance and I am propelled through a valve, an inert shell of waste. I float away, as a drop of water crashes into the Earth.
